When it comes to great facial hair, these holy men lead the pack.
Many men participate annually in “No Shave November,” heralding the coming of winter with facial hair to keep their faces warm. In quarantine, however, the tongue-in-cheek ritual has turned into “No Shave March … and April … and May.” There’s even a pop-culture term for it: the quarantine beard.
